Banjo is a sweet, sassy, and loving English Toy Spaniel who came to us when his owner passed. She had 9 dogs and three of them were deemed unadoptable so Old Dog Haven stepped in to help. The average English Toy life span is 10-12 years and Banjo is above average at 13 years and 9 months.
Banjo’s nickname is Jo-Jo the Jedi because of his Yoda-like ears. He also looks like a little bit like Gizmo. He loves to sit on laps and get his ears scratched, sniffing around in the yard, and a good nap. He also enjoys snuggling with one of our other 6 spaniels.
Banjo loves anyone and everyone that he meets and we joke that he is the Walmart greeter.
Banjo came to us completely shaved down due to mats and then he had to have all his teeth removed. He has mitral valve disease and in the first few months here battled an infection caused by having such horrible teeth. He recently had a middle ear infection that caused “old dog” vestibular disease, but we are happy to report that he has made a full recovery!
